I got the cops called on me - Page 5

post #61 of 82
Yeah I was wrong too, you should have just taken it like a little bcitch... The US mail service are always right and now in the American spirit of conflict-fear, I'm going to withdrawl from this thread too...

Sorry OP!

When did Head-fi turn into Somethingawful? Are we all just flaming each other in every thread now?

I said IF. I put it in caps. I'll say it again in caps and bold. IF. There, is it easier to understand now? IF he's being honest.

It's a one sided load of crap and to take it at face value is a stretch of the imagination.

If you've never known a person to- shall we say tell less than the truth or to leave important facts out of the story then you live in a box.

To accept the OP's story at face value is not reasonable and there's another side to the story which we don't know.

It's easy to say all Postal Employees are bad but that's not the reality I know. If you behave and treat them with respect they will reciprocate. Sure I've had issues with Postal Employees but to paint them all with the same broad brush is unreasonable.


Ok Ok- Awe too bad the Post Office Sucks- Feel Better?

I don't know how some people can actually blame the OP for this. The USPS is delivering service, and to me it sounds like the 2 staff were just one of those dickheads who hate their dead end job and treat customers whatever they feel like. Calling police when there's no threat is really overreacting and plus you're wasting Police's time.

Some of the responses by members in this thread have really surprised me. I think they're posting while they got some foreign objects stuck in their rear ends.

I'd also like to add that there is a risk in every line of text we read anywhere that it's a lie. That's just how it is.

But no, let's also blame the OP of every thread for that sudden realization. Way to go.

Not me.

I question it.

So What- I'm just not as gullible as the rest of you.


"If you behave and treat them with respect they will reciprocate."

"Always? Really! Sure that's not a bit naive?"

No- What I've found is people will react to you and what is presented is returned.

It's obvious the OP is worked up for what is really nothing- Is there other stuff going on in your life and maybe you took it out on a USPS Employee?


With this I bid you all a Fond Farewell.

Logically this means that you immediately assume everything that is posted here is a lie. That is one hell of a way to view life. I personally like to have a little faith in people.

Don't get me wrong. The way the OP dealt with the situation is not the way I personally would have dealt with it. But the OP came here to vent his frustration with an on-going situation, not to get flamed or called a BS artist. A person should be able vent a bit here. After all this is meant to be a friendly place.

cheers

Think about it guys who the hell would make up a situation like that? 8pm is way too late to be delivering mail and then to give the OP crap for it is terrible.

You act like you know why the postal worker was so late. Maybe they were a sub on an unfamiliar route and working OT to get ungrateful residents there mail. I'm certain that they also felt it was way too late to be delivering mail and would rather have been home with their kids.

If you guys are ever going to supervise others you'll need to develop some empathy and understanding.

I'll definitely agree with that.

Absolutely.
And when all your empathy and understanding reveals nothing but a jerk that pisses customers off it's time for

the op's transcript strongly reminds me of kafka, and almost makes me sick. it rings true to me - if it isn't, i'd like to buy op's books.

some reactions to that transcript - combined with posts in the recent 'don't go to dubai' story - make me wonder how far some people would go in defending "rules" and laws, and the behavior of those enforcing them. look at the country i come from, and its history, and draw your own conclusions: kafka saw what was there and had an inkling of where it would go.

very ugly things start that way, and people of a certain mindset help develop it.

After meeting the OP today at the Chicago meet......I gotta say, he just seems way too laid back to have gone looking for trouble in this case.

I hope you will get the justice .Best of Luck !

Good luck!

I also met the OP at the Chicago meet and think that there is a slim to none chance that the hostility of this mail carrier was the result of anything he did or did not do. I would agree with sejarzo that she was reacting to him just because she wished she had acted in that manner with another customer at another time. I was surprised about all the hostility that was directed at the OP when it seemed as if all he wanted to do was vent a little and tell a community that he is a part of an issue that he encountered. I'm not saying that anyone isn't welcome to their opinion, I am just saying I'm surprised.

I don't have any bad experience with postal workers in my home but once I got a bad experience in Seattle. I was parking my car in front of people's mailboxes. I didn't know that I'm not "allowed" to do that and apparently in each block of that suburb, they got all the mailboxes in front of one house instead of each mail box in each house. I got back and found this middle age asian postal worker putting mail into the mailboxes. He complaint to me that I'm not allowed to park in my spot since it made his job harder. Well, since I'm an outsider and I don't know that rule, I apologized and told him I'll move my car. Instead of letting me go and move my car, he snide me with this remark, "Are you sorry? I don't think you mean it." Well, that's it, that's just ruffle my feathers. Being an asian myself, we've been taught to respect elders, but I'm not going to take this kind of #### especially when I have offered my apology and was not looking for trouble at that time. So I just told him to call the cops and I will gladly pay for the fine instead of dealing with an *******. Well, he shut his mouth and finish putting his letter while I was watching him the whole time waiting for him to call the cops on me. To this day, I still don't know whether I was illegally parking or he just made up that rule. I'm not proud of what I did but I don't like to be jerk around either.

 

 

Well played, sir.

And as for being ..."not proud of what I did..." you should in no way feel regret. You merely expected to be treated with the same courtesy extended; when the civil servant became abusive, your response was, I would interpret, as both restrained and appropriate.

 

Cheers!
